I am working with Clif Foster and the Benicia Chamber Players to help promote their shows in Benicia. I’m taking the liberty of attaching a flyer for their upcoming performance on Jan. 20….
For the past several years, the BCP has played 4 times a year on Sunday afternoons in the Capitol Building (a great venue with terrific acoustics). However the powers that be in Sacramento (CA State Parks Dept.) decided that could not continue, despite the support of the local Ranger (Jon), the Mayor, and various other community leaders. As a result there were no performances in the fall of 2018, but there will be 3 performances in Spring 2019 in a new location (the Congregational Church on W. Second Street) versus the usual 2 in the fall, 2 in the spring. Moreover, I spoke with Jon at the Capitol today who told me that most events formerly held in the Capitol have had to be cancelled.
